    This morning on Morning Joe, former president Bush’s press secretary was ask to name a Bush/Republican accomplishment during his 8 year administration.

    She proudly announced the under funded and failed “No Child Left Behind”.

    Daily Nebraskan - US drops to 12th among college degrees earned

    According to a study released by the College Board, the United States is lagging behind other nations in college completion rates, an area in which the U.S. was once dominant. Now the U.S. has fallen to 12th among 36 developed nations for the number of 25 to 34-year-olds with college degrees. “
    “In the global economy, the disadvantage is that we won’t be able to compete as well as other nations,” said John Lee, assistant researcher with College Board. “It goes back to a sort of American competitiveness on a local and a global scale.”
    By 2018, 63 percent of the jobs in the U.S. will require some sort of post-secondary degree, but if only about 40 percent of people can actually access those jobs, we’ll have to either import that labor or eliminate those jobs, Lee said.

    According to the annual report of graduates from 2008-2009 from UNL Career Services, the average salary of graduates with bachelors degrees was $39,992. Of those 2008-2009 graduates who responded to the survey, 91.9 percent reported their job was related to their education and 92.6 percent said they were satisfied with their job.


    We were first. Now we rank 12th. The one Republican success.

    Education in the US will improve once we close the US Department of Education and leave it to the parents, communities and the States.

    You mean the education bill Ted Kennedy pushed through the Senate (and co-authored) that included massive increases in funding for elementary (and secondary education) all of nine years ago has not resulted in more college graduates yet?

    Holy fark!!!!!

    It was never meant to.
    It was made to create more brainwashed Nazi's and cannon fodder to keep the thinkers in line.Thinking is a crime. Questioning is treason.

    That would explain why more Dems voted for it than Republicans, but your still full of crap none the less.

    GovTrack: House Vote on Conference Report: H.R. 1 [107th]: No Child Left Behind Act of 2001

    GovTrack: Senate Vote on Conference Report: H.R. 1 [107th]: No Child Left Behind Act of 2001

    Or are you still trying to figure out why ELEMENTARY kids who started being taught with somewhat higher standards NINE years ago have not yet graduated from college?

    Or where you too busy lickin' my butt and suckin' on my balls to count?
